was still a state senator in illinois, barack obama gave his speech, now a famous speech in chicago at an antiwar rally. the rally was against the pending invasion iraq and obama was a to speak against invading iraq. but he was uncomfortable because this is an antiwar rally and they were familiar antiwar types from the chicago area who show up at every antiwar rally and he felt out of place because even though he was supposed to invading iraq, the point of the speech was that he was not against all wars, did he believe some wars were necessary and just and he cited incidents in history where he thought that was the case. and then he said that he felt the appropriate target for the united states or the leaders of al qaeda, the men who planned the attacks on this country in 2001. and he said, i would take up arms against al qaeda myself. well, at that point, maybe he had dreams even then at 2003 of someday becoming president of the united states, but he certainly could never have envisioned how about office he would have essentially his finger on the trigger to an extent that most ame

house asking that their states be allowed to secede from the union on the heels of president obama's re-election. one petition from texas has 70,000 signatures. last week, by the way, texas gop official peter morrison wrote a column asking for a, quote, amicable divorce from what he called the maggots, his words, those who re-elected president obama. we'll hear -- well, how about the texas governor, rick perry, by the way, who said this on the issue of secession back in 2009. >> texas is a unique place. when we came in the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave if we decided to do that. we got a great union. there's absolutely no reason to dissolve it, but if washington continues to thumb their nose at the american people, you know, who knows what may come out of that. >> first of all, that's not factually accurate. here's the statement from perry today. in a statement, governor perry believes in the greatness of our union, and nothing should be done to change it. he also shares the frustrations many americans have with our federal government. now more than
states. that's a mandate. it's unthinkable that any candidate can win anywhere close to that. obama won a pretty impressive victory even without a serious third party candidate, he did not get 51% of the popular vote. he won 26 states to romney's 24 states. we'll see time after time very, very close elections. we need to rethink the negotiations of mandates and say this person won the presidency. they need to go forward with that agenda. >> what about the republicans? are they going to do a big rethink here? >> yes, and more than one. it was interesting that the republican governors happened to be meeting this week in las vegas when this news about the interesting comments that romney made to his donors that we just saw and the republican governors, bobby jindal of louisiana did not miss five seconds before they really denounced what romney was saying. the republicans have a lot of things to think about, not of which is their growing problem with hispanic voters. that is the big growing group in this country. republicans are still largely a party of white people and older white people.
electoral votes, every battleground state with the exception of income, does barack obama now have a mandate? >> i don't think so because they also re-elected the house republicans so what did people intended or not we've got divided government. >> reporter: you don't think there is a mandate here. >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. i think these ideas we talked about are popular ideas. this was a close election. we have to make sure it works in the next two years. that means i think both parties have to talk to each other. >> reporter: could you see supporting a plan that raises tax rates? >> i'm not for raising tax rates. >> reporter: you won't support a plan? >> i don't want to get into that but i don't support raising tax rates. i've been saying that my entire career. >> reporter: diane sawyer asked speaker boehner if you were now the leader of the republican party and his answer was, oh, i wouldn't think so, paul ryan is a policy wonk. >> i take that as a great compliment from john. >> reporter: is that your role now, posi
of blue states in there that voted for obama. at the other end of the scale are people that are in poor states, in the south and southwest. those states will see a big tax increase and largely because they benefit from a lot of things like the child tax credit, many refundable credits, a payroll tax cut would be most disproportionate to them. lori: i said the child tax credit is your claim to fame. do you think that will continue? >> i do think so. we ought to worry about the fact that so much of it is refundable which means even if you don't pay any income tax you still get a tax rebate from the irs and the irs is giving out $100 billion the year in refundable tax credits. i look to that to be a big part of the negotiating between the white house and republicans. should we put these people back on the tax roll, part of that 47% that no longer pay income tax? lori: what is the worst-case scenario if we get the fiscal cliff? >> it would be terrible. we have done the economic modeling on this. we see this would have a severe impact on long-term economy, about the equivalent of four hurric

, the current secretary of state hillary clinton has said she will step aside after president obama begins his second term. ambassador susan rice has reportedly emerged as the frontrunner for the position. at least that's the trial balloon that white house officials are apparently floating to the news media analysts describe her as a hard nosed diplomat who shares many of president obama's view on foreign policy. as you may recall, after the consulate attack, ambassador rice hit the sunday talk shows and claimed that that assault started as a peaceful protest over a viral anti-muslim video. she said at the time that militants hijacked the protest and killed four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens. we now know that story is not true. shannon bream is live in washington with more. shannon, could that initial response keep secretary rice from being nominated to head the state department? >> well, shep, there are some who think that the comments ambassador rice made in the days just after the deadly benghazi attacks will amount to nothing more than a few awkward questi

kerry had an eye on the role of being the secretary of state to replace hillary clinton. his name was mentioned back in 2008 for that role as president obama considered who to put in for the cabinet. i think right now some of the conventional wisdom says that u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice even though she's embattled over her comments on benghazi, she may be the favorite for that role. so you've got some trial balloons floating around here. we know there are a couple deputies to the secretary of defense who are also being considered for the role. we'll have to wait and see exactly how it plays out. >> all right, brianna keilar, you have a full plate. >> yes. >> thank you very much. >> next hour we'll get reaction to general allen now being tangled in this scandal. nic paton walsh will join us with perspective there. >> and tom fuentes from the fbi will join us to talk about all this. >> then on "starting point," a man whose own sex scandal led to his down fall, former new jersey governor jim mcgreevey. jason chaffetz will way in and debbie wasserman shultz. >> man there is

between the white house and the state department. the white house saying well, you know, requests about diplomatic security don't really go through us. that's more through the state department. and then there was tension there and then when obama was asked about it, you know, do you stand with secretary clinton you know yeah the buck stops with me. every time you go into the details it always goes that would have been handled by the intelligence community. that's under investigation. it never -- exactly. >> bill: it's all under investigation. but here is -- i'm saying this with all due respect how big a fraud this is. if i'm in the washington press corps you know this press conference is a lot different than that because i basically say, mr. president, i'm a simple man, you know, i always start it with that to be humble. when did you know about -- president, when did you know about cia cia director petraeus' situation. what day? what hour did you know? if he dose it's under investigation i can't tell you. i go oh phooey phooey. that doesn't impede on any investigation. it's a question b
of state it's not going to fly. boy, obama came all but saying just bring it on because i'm going to defend her. >> that was absolutely fierce defense. that part press conference really sort of blew me back there, listening to that defense. but i also dide lndse graham and john mccain talking earlier today, and they were just as fierce on the other side. and one thing president obama kept saying is that this basically-- her coming out and saying who she did in the early days wasn't her fault because she was not responsible for benghazi. but that's basically what john mccain and lindsey graham are saying. that she wasn't responsible for benghazi, so why did the white house put her out there? and they're saying only for political rains. and they criticize ambassador rice forot asking more questions. she got a briefing. she got a briefing on the latest intelligence, says the white house. the white house says they're the ones that put her out there. so if what she said turns out not to be true later, they should take the blame. but, boy, what a fierce defense. i'm not holding my breath much lon
more tax breaks for millionaires and billionaire, i personally don't believe there's one state in this country which agrees with that. that's why i'm very happy to see president obama suggesting he's going to get out of capitol hill. he's going to go on the road and explain that issue to the american people. i hope millions of folks all over this country from blue states, from red states, start calling up capitol hill, their congressmen, their senators and say the wealthiest people in this country have to start paying their fair share of taxes. >> senator, good to see you, as always. thank you so much. happy veterans day. >> you, too. >> jackie, speaking of revenue or tax, let me play for you what bill crystal said yesterday. >> it won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. it really won't, i don't think. i don't understand why republicans don't take obama's offer to freeze taxes for everyone below $250,000. maki after of the republicans voted democrat and half of them live in hollywood. >> are you taking that as an indication that the republicans mi
the united states' potential role. health care was president obama's defining achievement for his first term. when we look at a second term will the president look at middle east peace, the road map to peace might this be his big deal for his second term? does it need to be? >> i think that's part of the motivation here. you know, you have coming up the palestinian authority which of course controls the west bank but not gaza is preparing to try to move toward enhanced status within the united nations and then president abbas indicated in the aftermath of that he might petition prime minister netanyahu to resume middle east negotiations. hamas obviously hears that and as we've seen many times in the past is trying to act as the spoiler. it's trying to remind the palestinian people that it's the resistance that's not looking for a peaceful resolution to this. so there's a lot of politics in play in what hamas has done and potential politics in play in terms of how israel responds. obviously this could create an opening down the road. the united states wants to see a return to an actual negoti
. then later by a texan. the reports state that the obama administration can decline to respond to a request and that it remains to be seen any type of response or recognition will be given to these petitions. martha: wet weather and falling temperatures are what folks are dealing with right now. that is making a miserable situation even worse for the victims of hurricane sandy this morning. folks lining up since early this morning at a distribution site to try to get their hands on some basic necessities and that's where we find our reporter, jonathan hunt, live in brooklyn, new york, this morning. how are they doing there this morning, jonathan? >> they're doing best they can, frankly, martha. this has become a daily routine for many of these people on coney island. the sun comes up with it the lines start forming. what they're here to pick up and what will be laid out along all these tables over the next few minutes are the very basics, food, water, d on theaning supplies. tables. the line will file around and they will be able to take what they believe they need. they spoke to a couple o
. as all of us know, the united states has just been through a presidential election. president obama was re-elected, and the obama administration had a number of, i think, foreign policy and counterterrorism successes in the first administration. obviously, bin laden was killed in the special operations raid. president obama oversaw the drawdown of troops in iran as well as afghanistan and, yet, i think the lasting legacy from the first term of the obama administration may well be what u.s. officials term the yemen model, how it is that the u.s. is going to fight these wars, these wars against non-state actors, groups against al-qaeda in the future, and in many ways, i think, that during the first term of the obama presidency yemen had become the laboratory for this approach. yemen is now a place over the past four years where the u.s. tested out ways in which it could fight al-qaeda. there's a number of approaches and the obama administration moved away from what the bush administration tempted to do with large ground scale invasions of iraq and afghanistan, and i think everybody wh
familiar with what kind of targeting the obama campaign did to the lgbt voters in the state? >> i don't know. i think we have all heard that their research showed the boat which is the same thing we have seen in other polling. huge votes in lgbt and straight. marriage equality is a top motivator. perhaps you could add to that but i think it's something that they saw. there was certainly no price to be paid for his position on marriage equality and there's a significant case to be made that there was increased excitement among these voters. because of that position in the contrast to that position with his opana. >> if you look at lgbt voters in the gallup data, they are disproportionately female, younger and nonwhite. those are all obama consistencies so i said what if given those characteristics they voted like the general public did, given that their race and aging characteristics and if that happens the lgbt vote should be about 56-44 for obama and romney, which suggest there is something about the lgbt thing that gives obama a 21-point swing. and i'm not saying that is all lgbt, b
in the united states hoped it would, and i think a recognition, and evolution by president obama away from the kind of discussion of nation-building that marked the 2008 campaign where he basically said nation-building is not our mission. and when you make that kind of statement, then it raises the question, how are you going to get beyond the 1% in developments and foreign-aid that paul describes? there was a proposal in washington in 2009, early 2010 to combine the development, diplomacy, and defense budgets together and allow an administration that came up largely between secretary gates and clinton, allow the administration, and the administration to move that money so that your initial instinct was not necessarily trying to be a military solution to every problem. of course it ran up immediately against congressional committees that are responsible for certain budgets. also, just a concern about whether or not that would affect the mix in a way many people, i think in washington were not comfortable with it. the idea died. might be time to bring it back. >> and abel comment on several

. you're not going to tell the president of the united states that his cia director is part of an fbi investigation? flawed investigation or not, would this not be something that barack obama would want to know as fast as possible. >> thank you both for now. i'll turn now to somebody who will know probably a few answers to these questions. attorney general eric holder is also caught in the cross-fire on this scandal, facing questions about what he knew and why he didn't inform the president and congress sooner. michael mukazy was a former attorney general and joins me now. welcome. >> good to see you again. before we go down this road i want to observe the day by thanking the people in the military, veterans and their families. >> very much so. >> who served this country and make discussions like this and debates like we have been having the last couple weeks possible. >> i totally endorse that. but what do you make of this scandal? because it seems to get more ridiculous in some ways and yet possibly more serious the more we hear about it. >> well, it has as you've pointed out elemen
an investigation. did the president do nothing? and did he didn't tell president obama, why not? is it time for him to be summoned to testimony. roberto gonzalez joins us. how do we determine that the attorney general of the united states should have told the president there was a federal investigation going on of the c.i.a. director assuming that he did not? >> well, i can't speak to what goes on within this administration. i can tell you this. if bob moehler had come to me and advised me that c.i.a. director was having an affair. i would have notified the president of united states. because it reflects extremely poor judgment. i believe the president would want to know that kind of information. in addition to that. at the time that it apparently holder was aware of this, the investigation as to whether or not there was a security breach, i believe had not been completed. as a result, i think it would have been important for the president and for the information to take appropriate steps to ensure that there would not be any damage done in that security. so you take appropriate steps to respond to
question about you asked burma and the united states and president obama's embrace of their reform efforts and support for it. in no other way that you can imagine is an entry by burma into the international community and what opportunity that it provides economically. that is an important focus of the burmese leadership. the economic prospects and promises of their coming into the international community and supported by the u.s. that is a path that if the north koreans would address the nuclear issue that would be available to them. we have said that from the outset. it is an important example for them to contemplate. it is a regime that continues to be isolated -- a regime that is a complete outlier. it is failing its people economically. there is another path. that example is an important one -- of a country totally isolated for many years, under extreme sanctions from the u.s., making a determination to go a different way. what the positive aspects are for their people and country are manifest and will be very clearly underscored by the president's visit. it is an important example fo
and served in the illinois state senate with president obama. let me get to you to respond to what you heard from chris van holland, especially on the issue of taxes. did i think there is ambiguity on the democratic side on the aisle and i think there is something chris did not say and we have not heard from the president. it is, who is rich? there is the 250,000 of description, the $500 .escription and many people across both sides of the aisle represent entities organized as passthroughs. very little discussion beyond the bumper sticker rhetoric on the impact on passthroughs as it relates to higher rates. did you notice really what we have not heard from the white house? a discussion on the other component that is where are the spending cuts? the discussion about that. there has not been any discussion since the election about where the cuts are. remember, the president described a balanced approach as a 1-3 revenue to cut ratio. we have been having the conversation on the revenue side. i think house republicans are here ready to be a part of the discussion and part of the solution. we are
